If you’re here you’re probably struggling with getting lean legs, especially if you find it easy to gain muscle in your lower body.

You might have done all the ”best workouts for lean and slim legs” that are typically recommended, but you ended up bulkier, or with some stubborn fat on your thighs you just can’t get rid of

I know what that feels like. Working out and seeing your legs getting bigger rather than smaller can be very frustrating.

In the past, I have struggled with under-eating and overexercising, and then with over-eating and doing the wrong exercises which made me bulky. Neither of these made me happy with my body. 

After a lot of testing and research, I designed my own workout and nutrition plan focused on getting lean and toned body in a healthy and balanced way. And I couldn’t be happier!

HOW TO TONE YOUR LEGS WITHOUT ADDING BULK

If you’re trying to get skinny legs, you need to:

1. Reduce overall body fat by doing more cardio

For cardio workouts, please read my blog post on How To Get Lean Legs With Proper Cardio.

2. Do the proper resistance training

You must do the right kind of resistance training that will tone your legs without adding bulk in the process. 

3. Avoid doing workouts that will add bulk to your thighs and hamstrings

All of the exercises below are from my Lean Legs Program 1 and they are specifically designed for slimming down your legs without getting bulky.

They might look easy, but you definitely feel them and they get results! I know this style of exercise is not for everyone, but if a lean and toned look is what you are after, then these are perfect.

Lastly, there are no squats, burpees and other workouts that are known to cause bulky legs, especially for some body types.

Let’s cover the resistance training for getting thin legs in more details.

Bonus Tip: I would also advise you to find out what your body type is. There are 3 main body types and they all lose weight and build muscle differently.

I have created a Body Type Quiz which will help you learn your body type in just 2 minutes. And it’s completely free! :)

HOW TO COMPLETE THE CIRCUIT TRAINING FOR SLIM LEGS 

  • Complete each exercise in Circuit 1 three times (so you do exercises 1, 2 and 3 straight after each other – not exercise 1 three times).
  • Do each workout for 45 secs.
  • Once you have completed the 3 exercises, rest for 30 seconds.
  • You should do 3 rounds in total.
  • Complete circuit 2 in the exact same way.

THE EXERCISES

CIRCUIT 1

1. SINGLE LEG SKATERS

For this one, you’ll need a gliding disc. If you don’t have a gliding disc, you can use a small towel or a paper plate. I’ll put a link below to the gliding discs that I use.

This exercise will give you beautiful, lean and toned legs without bulking. Your legs will be stronger but still feminine. And it will help you build stability and coordination.

best workouts for lean legs

Do 45 seconds on each leg.

2. YOGA PUSH UP

skinny legs workout for slim and toned legs

This exercise combines the benefits of yoga with the amazing upper body and core benefits of push-ups.

You’ll work on your upper body and inner core muscles, and lengthen and stretch through your upper and lower body.

3. LYING LEG RAISES

best workout for toned body

This exercise will help you slim down your legs without making your thighs bulky. And it’s a great workout for your core and abs.

I used ankle weights to make it a bit more challenging – I’ll also put a link to these below.

CIRCUIT 2

1. STRAIGHT LEG DONKEY RAISES

Dokey kicks are great for building your booty without growing your thighs. Do  4 regular, 4 to the left and 4 to the right.

best skinny legs workout

Do 45 seconds on each leg. Use ankle weights to make it a bit more challenging.

2. PUNCHES

Boxing is great for toning your arms without making them bulky. Victoria Secret models also love boxing.

In this exercise I also recommend using ankle weights for extra resistance.

3. ROLL UPS

This is a fantastic core and abdominal strengthening workout. It will also work your legs without making them too muscular.

Use yoga mat for comfort.

If you are interested in buying ankle weights and gliding discs, I use these ones: ankle weights and gliding discs.

GETTING STARTED WITH MY 3 STEPS TO LEAN LEGS PROGRAM

If you are looking for a workout to help you slim down your legs and tone up your body without getting bulky, my Lean Legs Program 1 will help you do just that!

I know from my own experience how frustrating it is to train hard and end up with results that you didn’t want.

That’s why I created three versions of my program, one for each of the three body types. That way you can be certain you’re going to get the best possible results!

My program includes a complete 8-week workout plan with the style of resistance training that you saw in this blog post. 

The videos are full-length and you can follow them from warm-up to cool down.

LEAN LEGS PROGRAM 1 BEFORE & AFTER

lean legs program before after

”I trained with a personal trainer 3 times a week and while traveling, I used to do Kayla Itsines’ SWEAT program.

However, my thighs continued to be a problem despite exercising like a machine (in fact, I started measuring them and the more SWEAT I was doing, the bigger they became).

With [Rachael’s] program, I started seeing the results almost immediately. I measured my thighs, butt and muffin top and I lost inches after first week!

This is only my 5-week progress, I was too eager to share the results with you. After years of trying other programs and even when I entered fitness competitions, I have never seen my legs this lean! I can’t wait to see my progress at the end of the 8weeks and again at the end of 16weeks after Round 2! Thank you and your lovely team. I am beyond grateful!

Start your journey to lean & toned today!

And as always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

  1. Hi, I have been following your 3 steps to lean legs program, it is very difficult for me to travel to gym everyday to walk 45 mins in the treadmill, do you have any alternative to the 45 mins walk that can be done purely at home to get slim legs ?

    1. Hey lovely! I don’t suggest walking at home or in place because from the experience of our customers it just isn’t as effective as walking on a treadmill or outside. If you want, you can invest in a treadmill. Just make sure that it’s in a zero degree incline. You may also try walking outside. Make sure that it’s on a flat surface :)

    1. Hi lovely,

      Feel free to exclude the push-ups and just repeat one of the exercises or increase the repetitions. :)

      I hope that helps. xx

  2. Also I am a bit confused with this so if its not too much to ask could you possibly post a schedule on what i should do each day as someone who cannot purchase the actual lean and toned legs program. Things like what cardio i should do this day and for how long and what day i should resistance training and how long also which ones. If it is possible for you guys to do so

  3. Hi I really wanna start this lean and toned legs program. But I can’t purchase it unfortunately. Is this one the same as the lean and toned legs program?

    1. Hi lovely,

      Some of the exercises are the same but the ones that are included in the full program are body type-specific to help you get the best and fastest results. All of the workouts included are low impact. :)

      We don’t usually do any discounts for the Program except for Black Friday in November.

      You could save up for it or ask someone to buy it for you as a present!
      Otherwise, maybe you could split it with a friend and you can both do the plan together? That will also help with motivation!

      I wish you all the best! xx

      Love,
      Len

  4. Good day,

    What equipment do we need for the Lean legs video course I´ve seen slide discs and ankle weights??

    1. Hi lovely,

      You’ll need little to no equipment! All the workouts can be done at home without any equipment. But for some workouts, you can use 2-5lbs ankle weights and gliding discs. If you don’t have gliding discs, you can use small towels or paper plates. :)

      If you have more questions, feel free to email us at info@rachaelattard.com

  5. Thanks for your reply. I had one more question. Does the ebook present different options for cardio besides running and jumping exercises? I ask because I have a knee problem and running and jumping are not ideal for me.

    1. Hi lovely,

      For the cardio, you can always substitute the running with walking and still get the same results :)

      I hope this helps! xx

      Love,
      Sanja

  6. Hi. I saw your latest response regarding the three programs available to purchase, but I’m still confused about something. Does the Lean Legs Video Course come with the complete 8-week workout plan that is available in the ebook, or only the “resistance” portion of the workout is available through the video course?
    Also, is the nutrition plan in the ebook specific for each body type or is it a general nutrition plan for all body types? Thanks!

    1. Hi lovely,

      Thanks for reaching out! <3

      The Lean Legs Video Course only comes with the resistance workouts in full length videos. The 3 Steps To Lean Legs Program comes with the resistance training, cardio, and meal plan (vegan and regular, recipe eBooks). The meal plans are specific for each body types :)

      I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions! xx

      Love,
      Sanja

  7. I was curious about the difference between the two programs? I am having a hard time figuring that out. I don’t really see a clear statement explaining the difference between the two or why I should add the 3 Steps To Lean Legs in with the Lean Legs program. Thanks!

    1. There are actually 3 body type specified products, so let me make it clear for you which one includes what, so you can decide easily what you need:

      The 3 Steps To Lean Legs Program is an ebook program that includes an 8 week workout and nutrition plan designed to help you get lean and toned without bulking. It will help you slim down your legs, but will also help you slim and tone your upper body and core too (the workouts are full body). It also includes a meal plan with a recipe eBook, and also a vegan version of both.

      The Lean Legs Video Course is the program that offers resistance training the same as the one from the ebook, but in full length follow at home workout video format.

      And the Premium Package is actually a bundle of both products (Lean Legs Video Course and the 3 Steps to Lean Legs ebook program), so you would get them both for a special price :)

      All of these products are a one time purchase, so you will get lifetime access to both of them without additional fees or subscriptions of any kind.

      Let me know if you have more concerns! xx

      Love,
      Ana

  8. Hi I’m very much keen on joining your program but however also worried at the same time that your diet plan might not fit Into my indian diet

    1. Hey lovely <3

      You can modify it however you want, or even make your own diet plan.
      The important thing is that you calculate your recommended daily calorie intake and eat at a slight deficit of 200 - 300 calories.
      You can do that by following this link. :)

      Let me know if you have more concerns! :)

      Love,
      Ana

    1. Hi lovely <3

      Thank you for reaching out!

      Rebounding is kind of like skipping - it's a great cardio exercise but it won’t slim down your legs and the bouncing motion can actually make your calves and thighs bigger. Every once in a while is probably OK. But I don’t think it is the most effective exercise - power walking and running are more effective in terms of cardio :)

      I hope this helps! xx

      Love,
      Tina

  9. Hi, I want to start your program I just have a question. Will this help get rid of cellulite? I know it’s best to do cardio first thing in the morning 5-6 days a week , for the fastest results should I do resistance training right after or later in the day? And how many times a week?

    1. Hi lovely <3
      If you purchase the ‘3 Steps to Lean Legs’ Program, you will get a full cardio plan and all the instructions on what you will do on each day when it comes to resistance exercises, so no need to worry :) But generally, if you can, it would be good to do the walks on an empty stomach, and as for the resistance exercises, you can do them in whichever time it suits you better – they are in the afternoon in the Program, but you can do them together with the walks as one session or in the afternoon.
      Also, if you have more questions, you can also write to info@rachaelattard.com :)

  10. hi,
    I’m very interested in the lean legs/arms programs but I do have a few concerns:
    -I’m a very active individual and my current workout regimen consists of (pretty) heavy weight-lifting and crossfit-esque workouts. I scrolled through both of the lean programs and am worried that the change in weight selection would be too drastic for me to ‘see/feel results.’ For example, I see that one of the recommended exercises for lean arms is bent over rows with light weights for 12 reps. Say I usually use 40lb for single dumbbell rows for 15 reps, would changing this weight to the suggested light weight (say 5lb) even be beneficial? I feel like I won’t consider the program ‘intense’ enough to ‘work’ because I’m used to heavy weights. In that case, would I increase my rep count?
    -I’m not sure what my body type is: I think in between a meso and an ecto morph. Which program should I look into?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    1. Hey lovely,
      I think I already responded to one of your previous questions so I’m going to copy it here, just so I make sure you don’t miss it :)
      Hey lovely,
      I know exactly what you mean!
      Rachael also said that when she stopped doing weights, she also thought lower intensity exercises, won’t have much impact on her.
      If your goal is to get leaner and you’re a bit reluctant to change your whole routine straight away, I would recommend that you take a more gradual approach.
      Try using lighter weights 20lbs first and then decrease the weight every couple of weeks until you start working with just your bodyweight. Always keep your reps high 12-15 with weights, 15-2 with your bodyweight.
      I know that stopping weights can be difficult but if your body type bulks up easily (Mesomorph or Endomorph) and you prefer a leaner look, heavyweights may not give you the results you want.
      I would highly recommend that you read this blog post that Rachael wrote a couple of years ago on why she stopped doing weights.
      You can find it here.
      As for your body type, if you’re not sure, feel free to send us a picture on info@rachaelattard.com and we’ll be able to tell you what’s your body type :)

  11. Hi,
    I come from a heavy lifting gym routine so have bulked up my entire body. I am really interested in leaning out and creating a toned body except I worry that the drastic decrease in weight as recommended by your program would not “challenge” me or won’t feel like a workout. eg. From your lean arms program, you recommended 12 reps of banded rows. I’m used to doing 45lb on each arm but decreasing to 5-10 lb with 12 reps seem like a big jump. Should I therefore increase the reps?

  12. hi,
    im doing insanity and I wanted to know if that type of cardio it´s okey to get what I want, lean legs, with your exercises?

    1. Hey lovely,
      Thanks for reaching out! Rachael always says that walking (low-intensity cardio) is absolutely the best workout if your goal is to get lean legs.
      I would highly recommend that you read this blog post that Rachael wrote on how to get lean legs with cardio.
      If you have any other questions, feel free to ask! xx
      Love,
      Marina

    1. Hey lovely,
      I wouldn’t do resistance training everyday, especially if you are Mesomorph or Endomorph body type. I would recommend that you do this type of resistance training 3-4 times per week. If your goal is to get lean legs, you should also do plenty of low-intensity cardio.
      Let me know if you have any other questions! xx

  13. Good morning. I seem to be between an endomorph and mesomorph. (I have done the quiz 3 times) Which programs is best?
    Thanks.

    1. Hi lovely,
      Thank you for reaching out! :)
      If you are a mix of endomorph and mesomorph, Rachael usually suggests doing the endomorph Program. <3
      Love,
      Tina

    1. Hi lovely,
      For maximum effects, Rachael recommends power walking for 45-60 minutes 5-6 days a week, then doing these full-body resistance exercises 2-3 times a week and eating healthy (low carb + slight calorie deficit).
      Love,
      Tina

  14. I was wondering if you had any videos on getting leaner arms and shoulders. I’m an athlete and having bulky arms is now something I have to deal with. Are there any exercises I could do to get lean arms?

  15. I used to to pay volleyball and my thighs were pretty skinny but I still had some inner thigh fat. I’ve stopped playing and the top of my thighs have gotten fatter. I also do liftweighting at school. I’ve taken your body quiz but I’ve gotten two results so I’m not sure which Body I have…

    1. Hi lovely,

      Thanks for reaching out! If you’re not sure about your body type, you can always send us a picture on info@rachaelattard.com and Rachael will be able to determine which body type you are :)

      After she determines that, she’ll have a much better idea of what you should do to get results you want!

      Love,
      Marina

  16. Hey Rachel!
    I am from India, and I am a college student. I play badminton on the weekends and I have thick thighs. How do I go about the lean leg program?? Also how to incorporate all the workouts in a week?? Like how do you mix the ab workout, core workout and upper body workout along with the leg workout. Also should I run everyday? P.s I am a mesomorph.

    1. Hi lovely,

      Thanks for reaching out! I completely understand how you feel and I’ll do my best to help! :)

      If your goal is to slim down your legs there are 3 steps you should follow – do the right type of cardio, do bodyweight resistance training and adjust your diet for weight loss.

      Rachael has a very detailed blog post that will help you learn how to slim down your legs so please go give it a read https://www.rachaelattard.com/how-to-get-skinny-legs-cardio-for-lean-legs/

      And to answer your more specific question, Rachael recommends that you do resistance training 3 times per week – full-body workouts and then once per week focus on your lower body. And as for cardio, she recommends running 2-3 times per week.

      Let me know if you have any other questions! xx

  18. Hi I am highly considering using your program! I took the body type quiz and got Endomorph but my whole life I have thought I was a mesomorph because I have more of a muscular look, so I am torn between the two. Which should I use for this program?

    Also does it matter how many lbs each ankle weight is for the exercises? Mine are 1.5 lbs each and wondering if that’s ok or if they should be less weight so I don’t bulk. Thanks!

    1. Hi lovely,

      Thanks for reaching out! If someone is between an endomorph and mesomorph, Rachael always recommends doing the endomorph program! As for the ankle weights. Rachael usually recommends weights that are 2-5 lbs but you can use the ones you already have. :) If you, however, feel that those weights are not enough, you can use slightly heavier. Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with!xx

  19. Hi, I have taken the quiz a few times and seem to be back and forth between mesomorph & ectomorph. I am still in the process of figuring out what works best for me. I cycle 2/3x a week and I enjoy but not sure it is working for me. I try to walk as well around 3x weekly and I do enjoy but still do not feel results. I also feel doing weights cause me to swell even though I know it is good for women. Is it possible to be a combination of two? My stomach has always been my problem area but in recent years it seems excess (unfortunate) weight gain is spreading to arms and legs as well. I am not sure what works for me anymore and do not want to bulk up in the wrong places but definitely need to slim down in others and nothing seems to be working! Any advice would be helpful!

    1. Hi lovely,

      If you’re not sure about your body type, you could emails us your picture on info@rachaelattard. Rachael will be able to tell :) It would be easier to give you advice if we know what’s your body type!

  20. Hello
    I purchased the skinny legs e book a few years ago and had success when I followed the program. I’ve just had a baby and am getting back into exercise however I can’t run yet and probably won’t be able to for quite some time. I was going to re-purchase the program to get access to the videos and online content but don’t want to do so if the plan still involves a lot of running as cardio. Can you let me know if the online content is new/different to the e-book? Thank you!

    1. Hi lovely,
      I’m so glad to hear you’ve seen good results on the Lean Legs Program! :)
      You were just sent an email with instructions on how to access the Program, you don’t have to purchase it again. The workout plan has stayed the same and there’s still running in it, but feel free to substitute it with more power walking.

      Our new premium feature – Lean Legs Video Course includes resistance training from the ebook, only in full length video format. These videos are streamed on an online platform that you’ll get access to immediately after the purchase.
      The course includes 16 full-length workout videos that will help slim down your legs as well as your upper body and core.
      The workouts are focused on getting you model-like toned legs and the full body exercise routine is (also) designed for your body type!
      The only difference is that it doesn’t have cardio and nutrition guidelines with recipes (those are in the ebook).

  22. Hello,
    A friend has suggested trying your full workout. I would love to buy it but she mentioned I will need to do running. I have back pain and I cannot run. Can I still do the program? What exercise do you recommend instead of running?

    Thanks!
    Sara

    1. Hi lovely,
      There is some running in the Lean Legs Program, but it can be easily substituted with more power walking. Walking has proven to be even better for slimming down the legs, so you will still get results. :)

      We would love to help you as much as we can! Our program has been designed to include the perfect type of resistance training and cardio to give you a lean and toned look, without making you bulky.
      It’s an 8 week workout and nutrition plan that will help you slim down your legs, but will also help you slim and tone your upper body and core too (the workouts are full body).

      It also includes a full meal plan, a separate recipe ebook and demonstration videos. You can find out more about it here:

  23. I am skinny fat (size 2-4), I work out 6 days a week (light weights muscular structure work 1 hour and 1/2 hour dance cardio, but I still have a flabby stomach, thick waist and saddlebags. I have followed a personal trainer for the last 3 years(however I have been consistently working out for the last 20 years) and I personally feel that I am not getting , what I am putting into it, if that makes sense? I have spent a lot of money, and I am honestly quite skeptical and apprehensive about starting a new program. Based on your test I am an Endomorph. Additionally, I have tried several online programs and my legs have bulked up so much that it takes me anywhere from 1-2 months to un-bulk. I also, see that you do HIIT, which is not for me. Please help. Also, does the lean legs program come in the form of an ebook? Can I print it out? Why don’t you come out with a video for lean legs program, sometimes the ebooks are complicated?

    1. Hi lovely,
      I know that reaching your fitness goals can be hard and that you probably have lots of questions about how to get that lean and toned body.
      The Lean Legs Program is an ebook that includes an 8 week workout and nutrition plan designed to help you get lean and toned without bulking.
      It also includes a full meal plan, a separate recipe ebook and short demonstration videos. If you opt for the Lean Legs program, I would recommend choosing the endomorph body type as it doesn’t have any HIIT and the diet is a little stricter. You can also print out the ebook if you wish!

      You will find out more about it here.

      Our Lean Legs Video Course is an additional feature separate from the Lean Legs Program (ebook).
      The course has resistance training from the Lean Legs Program only in full length video format.
      It includes 16 full-length workout videos that will help slim down your legs as well as your upper body and core.
      The workouts are focused on getting you model-like toned legs and the full body exercise routine is (also) designed for your body type!

  24. This program looks really good and very doable at my age lol, I am on a very specialized medical diet, so I was wondering if you can purchase only the lean legs exercise portion.

    1. Hi lovely,
      The Lean Legs Program includes a full meal plan and a recipe ebook, so it isn’t sold separately. The healthier you eat the better your results will be, but of course you can follow your own nutrition plan instead. You will still get results as long as you’re following the workout plan and being consistent! :) xx

  25. Hi can I check, for the cardio walking works well for me, and I’ve seen your post about jogging slowLynda (i.e. not as effective as running very fast or walking for 60 mins).

    So is all your cardio just walking for 60 mins at 7kmh? Do you run at all? If so how long for and what speed. Do you do HI IT, as your explained it bulks me up.

    Right now to remain skinny in eating very low kcals and walking everything. I’m skinny but not sustainable.

    Thanks
    S x

    1. Hi lovely,
      Yes, we recommend walking for at least 60 minutes per day at the speed of 6-7km/h. Rachael only runs sometimes when she feels like it because she aims for 10 000 steps per day and this has proven to be super effective for slimming down the legs! She also does HIIT once or twice a week. :) If you’re an endomorph body type then you can skip HIIT sessions and just focus on lighter resistance training.
      Running is another great way of slimming down the legs, so we recommend aiming for a running speed of 10-12km/hr or 6.2-7.5mph.

      If you’re trying to lose weight it’s important to eat at a calorie deficit, but try to eat at least 1200 calories per day as this is the absolute minimum for a healthy weight loss. Severe calorie restriction can slow down your metabolism and make it harder for you to lose weight in the future, so that’s a good thing to keep in mind.
      Wishing you all the best! xx

  26. Hello! I am an endomorph, 5’10 and about 154 pounds. I have always been not-thin and not-chubby, but when I did ballet for three years, I gained a LOT of muscle and didn’t lose any fat. I stopped dancing, but my bulky calves remained. I want to try the Lean Legs Program when I have enough money, but right now I’m a student and… you know how it is. Also, I’m vegan which is an issue in many other programs, so I really want to see what your program can do for me. Will these workouts help reduce the muscle bulk in my calves as well as fat? That is my biggest concern and insecurity. Also, I know these workouts target the lower body, but my stomach sticks out like a child’s and my arms are quite bulky (and somehow fat?) from growing up in a surfing family. Will they help with that too? I really hope this is the program for me!
    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi lovely,
      We would love to help you as much as we can! :)

  27. Hi Rachael
    I just stumbled on your program and I am very interested to learn more. According to the quiz I am a mesomorph, I am 5’8” 140 lbs with long legs and arms (6ft wingspan). My issue is that I am very small on top – (an a cup is generous), and that is the first place I lose weight. while I enjoy having nice abs, my face and shoulders/collar bones begin to look too scrawny for my liking.

    The bottom half is a different story – there is a nice thick layer of insulation from my butt on down, and in order to make pants fit my legs, I am wearing sizes that are way too large in the waist. This bulk is not muscle (genetically not blessed with muscle definition) but that stubborn fat I just cannot get rid of.

    I have been an athlete my whole life and have spent the last year and half eating very clean, low carb, no sugar etc and have not noticed much change with the fat (although I feel great)! What would your recommendation be for me moving forward? Can I be helped??

    Thanks for the time and information.

    1. Hi lovely,
      We would love to help you as much as we can! :)
      Unfortunately it’s impossible to spot reduce fat, but you can achieve a more proportional look by slimming down your lower body and gaining some muscle in your upper body by doing weighted resistance workouts.

  28. Hi Rachael,

    I’ve been doing HIIT workouts for quite a while in hopes of getting leaner overall, but especially in my legs. I’m a mix between mesomorph and endomorph and have noticed that I’ve bulked up a lot and am quite muscular now, but I have not lost any fat and therefore am just getting bigger. I want to do this program in hopes of getting the lean legs I’ve always dreamed of and was wondering how soon I could expect to see thinner legs and how long I should do the program for! Any advice would be appreciated :)

    1. Hi lovely,
      If you find you’re between the mesomorph and endomorph body type, we recommend doing the Endomorph Lean Legs Program. It’s a little stricter with nutrition and it doesn’t have any HIIT that can make you bulky.
      Everyone gets results at different rates, so it’s important to keep going and stay persistent. You should see results anywhere from 4-8 weeks.

      You can find out more about the program here:

  29. Hi Rachael :)

    I want to start out by doing some of the exercises on your YouTube channel. Being an endomorph, would these workouts still be effective and not bulk up my thighs more ?

    1. Hi lovely,
      Yes, these workouts will definitely help you get leaner and more toned! :) Feel free to do any of them and just avoid the HIIT exercises as they can make you bulky. Wishing you best of luck! xx

      Love,
      Diana

  30. Hi! Just bought the ebook and I’m so excited to get started! I understand that cycling can increase bulking. I am however a fan of this activity and bike riding in general. Is there a way I can incorporate it sparingly into my plan? Like once a week or once every two weeks?

    1. Hi lovely,
      Yay! That’s amazing news! :) If you are an endomorph then cycling will most likely make your legs bigger so I would avoid it completely.
      If you are a mesomorph, you may or may not be able to get away with cycling. Some mesomorphs are OK with it, while others aren’t. Either way, I would still only do it 1-2 times per week maximum, because overdoing it with cycling will most likely make your legs bigger.
      Wishing you all the best! xx

      Love,

  31. Hi Rachael,

    I just wanna ask if running on a treadmill is also effective in making my legs thinner. I’m 17 and I have a really thin upper body but my thighs are getting huge and I’m scared that running will only make it worse.

    1. Hi lovely,
      Running and power walking are the best workouts for slimming down your legs. I would definitely give it a go, just make sure you’re running at a steady state without any inclines. xx

      Love,
      Diana

  32. I have mesomorphic body shape. So can I do the free lean legs day 1,2 and 3 workouts to slim down my thighs?

    1. Hi lovely,
      Of course, these workouts were designed to help you slim and tone your legs! If you’re still struggling and looking for a full workout and nutrition plan that tells you exactly what to do each day, I would recommend giving our Lean Legs Program a go. :)

  33. Hi Rachael,

    I am a mix between mesomorph and endomorph, I always have had large thighs, even as a young girl and always am very self conscious of my big thighs, especially now after having two babies and gaining an extra 60pounds… I am 5’7″, around 165 pounds now and 5 months post partum, I am really trying hard to begin getting back in shape (with what spare time I have between caring for two babies and working fulltime) and I want to do it right this time around. Would your diet and workouts be ok for me breatfeeding, or should I modify it at all? Also would baby wearing while power-walking cause me to bulk up at all do you think?
    Thanks and any advice is appreciated!

    1. Hi lovely,
      If you find you’re between the mesomorph and endomorph body type, we recommend doing the endomorph program.
      I would suggest downloading our free 7 Day Slim Legs Diet to see what the meals are like in the program, but I think it would be suitable for you as well as the workout plan (the workouts are mostly low impact).
      It’s also ok if you’re carrying the baby while walking, it won’t hinder your progress. :)

  34. Hi Rachael,

    I took your test and wasn’t surprised when it revealed I’m an endomorph. My legs have been very bulky for a very long time which makes me look a lot bulkier than I am due to my height (5”2). I found your blog a few days ago. it has really helped me start thinking it’s possible to achieve the lean legs I’ve always wanted. I can’t afford your book yet, but I’m trying to get some money together for it. Also, I wanted to know how long it will take to start seeing results. I want to be able to set realistic goals for myself.

    Thanks so much.

    1. Hi lovely,
      I’m glad you’ve found the info on our blog helpful! :) If you were to follow the Lean Legs Program, you could expect to see results in about 8 weeks. Everyone gets results at different rates, but it’s important to eat healthy and stay consistent with the workout plan! xx

  35. Hi Rachael, I’m 12 years old and I am so annoyed with my muscular legs. Everyone tells me I’m skinny, but I just don’t think I’m skinny enough. I just wanted to know if doing your program would be safe and help with my body issues because of my age. I know I’m a little too young for this type of stuff, but I’m desperate. So, is it safe?

    1. Hi lovely,
      I understand your frustration. However, I wouldn’t recommend getting on a diet or strict workout programs yet since you’re still very young and growing, so your legs will also change over the next couple of years.
      You can still try out some meals from our 7 Day Slim Legs Diet, but try not to stress about the calories and use it as a guide only.
      I would also suggest checking out our YouTube channel with lots of great workout videos that will help you slim and tone your legs :).

      Love,
      Diana

  36. Hi Rachael,

    I’m having a hard time on making my legs thin and slender, I’ve just discover your blog and I think this would be helpful because it’s so relatable cause I’m also a mesomorph and has this big annoying muscular and bulky legs I’ve never dreamed of, I can’t seem to afford your lean legs program so I go to your YouTube channel instead, and I’ve found some of those exercises that I would like to give a try and download it, does all of those exercises you upload are still effective even tho it’s not on your lean legs program? And btw I wanna start walking tomorrow morning with an empty stomach (I read this on your blog) because I’m afraid running might cause me to bulk more ?
    Sorry for my bad english btw

    1. Hi lovely,
      Of course, the workouts on our YouTube channel will also help you get lean and toned! :)
      We rarely do any discounts for the Lean legs Program, but there are still some ways to get it:
      You could save up for it or ask someone to buy it for you as a present!
      Otherwise, maybe you could split it with a friend and you can both do the plan together? That will also help with motivation!
      Fasted cardio is a great way to burn fat and If you find that running makes your legs more muscular, feel free to substitute it with some extra power walking.
      Wishing you all the best xx

      Diana

  37. Hey,
    I will buy your plan in may. I‘m looking forward to it. But I am a vegetarian. Is there only a main plan for everyone and one for vegans?

    1. Hi lovely,
      Yes, that’s correct! The Lean Legs Program includes a regular meal plan and a vegan meal plan.
      If you are vegetarian, you can substitute the high protein foods (such as tempeh, tofu, lentils, etc) with eggs or any other type of high protein food that you enjoy. So it’s easy to adjust to a vegetarian diet as well! :) xx

  39. Hello,
    I just purchased your lean legs program yesterday! I’m a Mesomorph (but I do tend to have a harder time toning/shrinking my “saddle bag” area and my calves are a little fuller than I’d like). I do a lot of yoga (vinyasa flow w/ majority of classes I attend being power/heated). Yoga is literally the first type of exercise regimen that I absolutely love and look forward to doing, but am wondering if this is a good type of exercise for my body type and if/how you recommend it fitting in with doing your lean legs program. Thanks!

    1. Hi lovely,
      The Lean legs Program will definitely help you slim down your entire legs, including hips and calves! :)
      Yoga is amazing because it has a lot of health benefits, so you can keep attending those classes once or twice a week.
      Wishing you all the best! xx

    I’m looking to get this program, however I would like to find out what kind of exercises I can expect. Are they typically what’s shown above? I have a knee injury (ACL tear) and wondering I will be able to follow the program. The kind of exercises I need to avoid are running, jumping or putting a lot of weight on my knees.

  42. Hello, how many pages does ebook have? Will I get 2 ebooks one of which has workouts and other one has recipes?

    It says I will get workout program which suits my body type. How will I know which type of body I have? What content changes in ebook according to body type?

    Thank you.

    1. Hi there!
      Our Lean Legs Program includes a full 8 week workout and nutrition plan, a separate recipe ebook and demonstration videos. The main ebook has about 107 pages.

      Please take this free test to find out your body type. :)

      These are the main differences between the three body types:

      – The endomorph plan has no HIIT, only light circuits and cardio and the meal plan is 25% carbs, 45% fat and 30% protein.

      – The mesomorph plan has HIIT plus circuits and cardio. And the meal plan is 40% carbs, 30% fat and 30% protein.

      – Lastly, the ectomorph plan has HIIT, circuits and cardio, and the meal plan is 50% carbs, 25% fat and 25% protein. This body type is the only one that can lift heavier weights, but we did not include them as we wanted the workout plan to be on the more conservative side, so workouts are the same as mesomorph’s.

      That being said, all meal plans start out with low carb (20%) for the first 4 weeks to increase fat burn, but the calories for these first 4 weeks are different. And then the meal plan changes to the correct calories and macros for each body type in weeks 5-8.
      All versions of the eBook have the same theme which is a focus on light circuits that don’t bulk up, so we did not want to make them significantly different. It’s all in the same style. :)

      Diana

  44. Hi Rachel. I have you e book which I have been doing for 9 months. I have had v Anazing results but feel I need a change. Do you have a new programme I can follow x

    1. Hi lovely,
      We don’t have a new program yet but it’s something we are considering for the future. :)
      After finishing the Lean Legs Program I would recommend adding (slightly heavier) ankle weights, gliding discs and resistance bands (if you haven’t already). Or you can increase the repetitions per set to make the workouts more challenging.

      If you’d like to add more variety, you can combine the program with other types of workouts such as swimming, boxing, pilates, yoga and similar.

      Wishing you all the best! xx

    In case you do warmup workouts, what type would be best to prevent bulking? I feel like most involve a lot of jumping which can result in muscle growth in the legs.

    1. Hi lovely,
      Depending on how much weight or muscle you want to lose it takes anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months. Some girls see results after only 2 weeks while the others notice a difference only after week 6 :)

  57. Hi Rachel,

    I’m so glad I found your blog. However, I don’t know how and where to start… my wedding is in 4 months, but I’m physically unprepared. I’m 5’4 and I weigh between 124-126 pounds. Stomach is big… arm is flabby… legs are the only things I’m fine with. Of course that does not mean I’m proud of my flat butt! Can I send you a picture of myself in order for you to help me with my next step please? It would really mean a lot…. thank you so much.

    1. Hi lovely,

      Unfortunately, I am receiving so many messages that I just can’t get to everybody anymore. I’ve tried to provide as much free information on my blog as I can. I hope you understand :)

      I do answer everyone’s questions in the Lean Legs Training Club and spend all of my time here. Here’s the link if you’re interested xx

  58. Hi Rachael , if I spread out the 3 lean legs workouts over the course of the week and run everyday for about 30 mins, do you think I’ll see a change in my thighs? And do these workouts help get leaner legs for a mesomorph body type?
    Thank you! X

  59. Hi. I’m curious about these exercises. The still images make it hard to follow. If I buy the ebook will it be clear how to do them? And will I need gliders and weights?

    1. Hi lovely, the still images in the eBook are better and are more demonstration. And it also has demonstration workout videos for each exercise and workout :) I use gliding discs and ankle weights in the eBook but you can do the workouts without xx

  60. Hi Rachael! If I spread out the 3 day lean legs workout you have put up over the week and alternate between the 10 minute at home workout and the full body calorie burning circuit doing one of them every day, would this instead build up my thighs and glutes? I find that when I do donkey kicks my glutes build when what I’m aiming for is to get them smaller and toned! Thanks so much!

  61. Hi Rachael! I’m 5’2 about 110lbs, I’m so confused about my body type. I’m muscular from my waist up (six pack included) and muscular, fat and cellulite from my hips down to my ankles….weird. I am a super busy stay at home mom with only 30 minutes 5 days a week to spare for exercise…what should I do?
    Thanks!

  62. Hi Rachael thank you for sharing. I have a quite sedentary lifestyle where I sit most of the day in my office. I do try to walk whenever I can like walking home, walking to train station, upstairs and downstairs etc… I do have time to exercise in the morning but after that all I mostly do is to sit. I wonder if it would affect my progress if I follow your plan. I’m just too concerned since I don’t want to waste my energy if it would not eventually lead to success due to my unavoidable lifestyle.

    1. Hi lovely, no I think it would be fine! Most people have sedentary jobs where they sit at a desk all day. And I have really designed it for people who have the same lifestyle :) xx

  63. Hi Rachael, I’m 161cm and 58kg. I have a very fat stomach and huge flabby arms. The only consolation is that my legs are not as flabby as my arms but they are not toned either. I’ve been diagnosed with PCOS 3 years ago and have been putting on weight since, especially on my stomach. Is it possible for me to send you my photo so that you can access what kind of body type I am and what kind of exercise I need? Thank you!

  64. Hi Rachael,

    I’m really glad and very grateful that I’ve found your blog. May I check for these skinny legs workout circuit exercise, how many times should I do per week?? Is it everyday work out?

      1. Hi Rachael, thanks a lot for your reply. Just 1 more question though. Do these exercises work to slim down muscular thighs as well?

  65. Hi Rachael,
    First, thanks for all your content and inspiration. Is your Ebook only focused on legs? Or will I be able to tone my whole body and get flat abs? Does it include diet?

    1. Hi lovely! You’re very welcome :) All workouts are actually full body so will help tone up your upper body and core (as well as tone up your legs and slim them down). And yes it does include an 8 week nutrition plan too! :) xx

  66. Hi Rachael,
    I am a dancer and I have really muscular thighs. I’m 14 years old and about 5’4 but still growing I don’t think I’m an endomorph maybe both types. But I really want to slim down my quads and inner thighs. I have been doing leg exercises with a Pilates ring but it doesn’t seem to be doing much. What can I do to get slim thighs? You’re the only person I’ve found that can help so thanks so much! Xx

    1. Hi Lani, as you mentioned, you are still young so your body will change a lot in the next few years (and for the better!). Please have a read of this blog post on how to slim down muscular thighs. A lot of people make the mistake of doing exercises that target your inner thigh. This is OK but it builds muscle here and doesn’t get rid of inner thigh fat, so might make them look bigger. To get rid of inner thigh fat, you need to do cardio! I hope that helps xx

  67. Hi there, lovely Rachael! :)

    I understand that these exercises are part of your eBook. I wanna ask if doing these alone can help me with my ultimate goal – FAT LOSS.

    I am a 24-year-old female and had been trying all kinds of exercises but it’s really hard for me to reduce weight and inches. I’m an endomorph (unfortunately) and is suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS with hormonal imbalance. I noticed that I do gain muscle mass but doesn’t lose fat on top of those muscles I have gained.

    I am really interested with your blogs and workouts because it’s rare for me to find posts like these that caters my body type (endomorphic body).

    I hope you can help me as to how to do my workouts and I would appreciate any feedback!

    Thank you so much!
    xoxo

    I hope you can give me tips

    1. Hi lovely! Well these workouts will definitely help with fat loss, but I would recommend including cardio and of course a healthy diet to get overall fat loss. Have a look at my blog posts on cardio and diet which should help give you some tips. Also I’m really sorry to hear about your hormone issues – I hope you can recover from that soon! xx

      1. Hi Rachael!

        Will checkout your cardio and diet blog posts!
        I am truly inspired and motivated by your posts :)
        Thank you for helping all of us!

        With love,
        G

  68. Hey Rachael!

    I’m 14 and I’m a little overweight and I’m also 5″8. I’ve been trying to lose weight but I don’t want to get bulked up. I took my body type quiz and it says that I’m all of them. I’d appreciate it if you could email me back! Also is endurance running gonna bulk you up?

    1. Hi Ashley, it’s hard to tell your body type without knowing your weight or seeing a photo. But I would say you are probably the mesomorph body type. Endurance running shouldn’t bulk you up but everyone’s bodies are different! xx

  69. Hi Rachel, I have very bulky legs, but a waist of as mesomorph. And I was bullied, calling my legs fat for this fact, so I was wondering if doing this course for around a month for 30 minutes do you think it will help my waist and legs. Getting the reasult that I’d like. Also later going more deep in the teen age will it also help tone by body and maybe any other solutions for this problem. Thanks so much I hope you can help me! :)

    1. Hi lovely, I’m so sorry to hear this :( Just remember that bullying says more about that person than it does about you – so keep your head high and don’t let them get to you! I would say doing these style of workouts 2-3 times per week and also doing some cardio (read more here). Cardio will work better to slim down your legs xx

  70. Hi Rachael

    When you purchase the e-book, it mentions that you’ll gain access to workout videos ( explaining the exercises). Does that expire after 8 weeks, or can we continue to access them? Keen to purchase the book, I just know I won’t be able to start for a few weeks, so don’t want to waste my access! Oh and is the program just for legs or does it cover basic abs and upper body as well? :)

    Thanks!

    Wendy

  71. Hi Rachel, I’m not too sure what body type I am – mesomorph or endomorph?
    Would you recommend following the endomorph programme just in case?
    Also is there an ebook specifically for endomorphs ?
    Thank you x

    1. Hi Lorraine, I would recommend following the endomorph eBook if you’re in between body types. And yes there are different eBooks for each of the body types :) When you buy the eBook, you’ll be sent an email from me and from there you will be able to choose your body type and download the correct eBook :) xxx

  72. Hi Rachael!I’ve recently started to read through all your blogs on how to get skinny legs, and they’re amazing!You’re basically my role model! Unfortunately, I’m not able to buy your eBook because I’m a bit young for credit cards.Could you please recommend some good workouts I could do in order to reach my goal?Thank you so much! <3

  73. Hi Rachael,

    Im 28 years old and I’m 5’2 and weight about 50 kg. I’ve been skinny my whole life but gained a few kgs in the past 2 years especially on the stomach area and thighs. I think I’m in the category of skinny fat. And from your blog I consider myself as in between an ectomorph and mesomorph.

    I’ve been doing BBG Kayla work out (week 9 now) and see not much changes because I find that its hard to lose fat and my thighs got a bit bulky.

    Trying to take your advise by doing more power walking (1 hour a day) to make it slimmer. Any other advise you can give? Oh and do you think I have any health issues such as hormone imbalance or hypothyroidism?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi lovely! If you’re skinny fat, HIIT workouts should be helping. If you’re really consistent with exercise and you eat well (diet is suuuper important!), but you’re still not getting results, it could be because you have issues with hypothyroidism or hormones. If you’re worried about this, I would do some googling of the symptoms to see if you have them. And if so, definitely book in to see a doctor or naturopath to get checked out! Having these issues will make it very difficult for you to lose weight (you’ll even gain weight or hold onto it) no matter what you do. So it’s worth getting checked out. Good luck! xx

  74. Hi Rachael! Just wondering if skinny legs ebook can help me get from muscular to skinny thighs. I was a major water polo player and standing at 5’3, my thighs bulked up really quickly. Thank you!

    1. I was an ectomorph before water polo… I just went through really intensive training and there are lots of stairs at my school that I have to climb everyday. Thanks!

  75. Im 34 years. 168cm. 94 kg with a massive huge thigh and glutes. Struggling for 7 years. Tried various diets exercises but in vain. Please help. This stubborn weight started after delivery.

    1. Hi lovely, I’m so sorry to hear this. If you have tried diet and exercise and haven’t been successful (7 years is a long time!) it could be worth getting checked out by a doctor to see if you have any other issues such as hormone imbalance or hypothyroidism which is making it hard for you to lose weight. Another reason people struggle is because they’re not consistent. Only you will know if you’ve really been consistent and have been putting in the time and effort. I know it sounds like a pain but it’s a good idea to keep a food and exercise diary just for a week or so to see what areas you need improving. Good luck with everything! xx

  76. hi
    I am 41 have gained 8 kilos in the past 2 years mostly my abdomen, I always hovered between 52-55kilos and I am 157cm tall.
    I started interval training and noticed that my thighs got even bigger but I did not lose weight at all. I am short and full and its very hard for me to lose weight. I just bought turbulence training and now I am worried that my thighs will bulk up further
    can you pls supply me with a customized plan
    I was unable to contact you directly by email

    1. Hi lovely! Unfortunately I don’t do customized plans sorry, as I just don’t have the time for it right now :( If you are short, I would advise against interval training because you can bulk up easily. I would keep your cardio to steady state walking and running (even running may bulk you up if you’re an endomorph). Also, if you have gained a significant amount of weight in your stomach region, it can be a sign that this is because of something else (this was the case for me). The most likely causes are hormone imbalance and hypothyroidism, or both. So I would definitely look into this and get checked out. Good luck! I wish you all the best xx

  77. Hi Rachael,
    I am a teen girl but I am struggling to lose weight from my thighs. I have been bullied quite a bit from people calling my legs chubby and large. I am 166cm and 53kg but most of my weight resides in the lower half of my body. I am a mesomorph with a pear shaped body. I have been running everyday since September 2016 but I have not seen any difference with my legs. I know that you can’t spot reduce but I am trying everything I can do to lose weight from my thighs. From September to December I was running for 10 minutes a day. I noticed that I was significantly in better cardio shape but there was no difference with my legs. I came across your blog in January and have read every single blog post you have written. Since then, I have tried to extend the length of my exercise. In the morning, I wake up at 5:30 and go for a 20 to 30 minute power walk before eating and try to run for about 30 minutes and follow up with about 20 minutes of power walking in the afternoon. I have noticed that most of my stubborn thigh fat is in the top portion of my inner thigh. This area moves the most by far and I can squeeze a lot of fat from that area. When I walk, the top half of my thighs rub against each other and I get so frustrated and irritated every time this happens. If you could give me some specific tips that would help me lose weight from my thighs really quickly, please please please help me. It hurts everytime someone comments about the way my legs look and I would love, more than anything, to wake up in the morning and feel confident about the way that I and my legs look.
    Thank you so much for writing your blog.

    1. Hi lovely! Aww I’m so sorry to hear about your bullying. Try not to let nasty people like that get you down! Their actions show a lot about who they are as a person, not you. You actually don’t need to do running to slim down your legs – walking is the best for this. So I would maybe stop running and just focus on doing walking. The thing with walking is you need to do a lot of it, so what you are doing at the moment is good. And try to walk around at school as much as you can too! Every bit counts :) I would be aiming for 10,000 steps per day. Also at your age, your hormones are having an effect on your body too and this can also affect how easy it is for you to lose weight. So unfortunately there might not be much you can do about your hormones at the moment. But just know that as you get older, your body continues to change until around 18. My body got a lot better after school. So don’t worry too much yet hun! Keep doing what you are doing and you will get results xx

  78. Hi Rachael
    May i know is there any kind of training that i need to avoid to get bulky legs but help to tone my lower belly (cos i easily develop muscle, esp my harmstring and rectus ) as i noticed after doing burpees or jump lunges or 2min-running at 11kmph with 1min-8kmph slow jog ( as mentioned in your blog post #25, it helps to tone my tummy but my legs just get bigger .. pls help..

  79. hi…am purely a vegetarian.i dont eat eggs also.can u please help me to reduce thigh and hips and overall body weight.suggest diet accoedingly
    thanks in advance
    aarti

  80. Hey, first of all, thanks for all your helpful blogposts! I was just wondering, when you say to complete the circuit 3 times, did that equate to the 3 rounds? Or is that 9 times in total?

    Also, with walking/running cardio, if I walked daily, how long would you recommend it for just as a goal? Thanks again!

    1. Hi! what do you recommend for someone who’s been vegan for about two years and lost about 20 pounds, I’m 5’3, around 120-125. never weigh myself, however, I am skinny fat and have been trying to figure out what can make my body tone up especially my stomach area, I am trying to really tone up and be stronger. Will doing this help? I also practice ashtanga yoga every other day, and just started about two months ago. I’d really appreciate a reply. Thanks so much! Definitely will give this a try, great workouts^.^

      1. Hi hun! Yes definitely doing resistance training like this will help you tone up. I would also recommend doing some HIIT workouts such as this to help you tone up your core and improve your strength. Good luck! xx

  81. How many reps are you completing of each exercise or are all exercises completed for 45 seconds?
    Also, how many minutes per day can one expect to be working out if following your program?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi lovely, I’m just completing each exercise for 45 seconds, so as many reps as you can do in that time. Depending on the exercise, it’s usually quite high in reps (i.e. 20). In my eBook, circuits like this will take around 30-45 minutes (depending on how much rest you have), and cardio days are around 45 minutes. But there is additional cardio in there as this is what is best for slimming down your legs. You can cut it back to suit your schedule of course, but the closer you can follow it, the better your results will be xx

      1. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and so promptly, that was really helpful. It looks like a great program, I will definitely be giving it a try!
